Hi I'm j.jensen Nelson

Im Jake Nelson. I have left my family & all things to serve a mission for 2 yrs & share what i know to be true & i'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19 years old and have graduated from Davis High school. I love the our doors, camping, mountaineering, rock climbing, repelling and jeeping. you can often find me up in the mountains or out on the lake kayaking or wake surfing. i love Subaru's, street bikes and music. i played the drums for about 6 years and loved it and continue to play today. i have left all this behind to serve a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints because i know for myself this is the restored church of Jesus Christ. serving a mission has changed my life. i have always desired a relationship with god, even at a young age i remember riding in the back sit of our car on the way to the elementary school. my mom turned on the radio and i got mad at her and told her to turn it off because i was talking with God. she smiled and asked me what god was saying. i replied im not sure.. i cant tell if its my thoughts or god talking. that tinny seed of faith has blossomed into a tree, from countless experiences one of which is very near to me is reading the book of Mormon. you too can know for yourself if this is in fact Christs church by readying pondering and praying about the book of Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

the reason i am a Mormon is because i have found and felt something here that i have never felt anywhere else and that feeling is the cleansing power of the atonement. Christ suffered and atoned for our sins and has created his gospel to help us access his atonement. the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ is found in the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints and anyone can come and feel for themselves and see if it is not sweet and savory to the soul. the atonement allows us to change and become something more through Christ then we could become by ourselves. there is no better feeling or knowledge then to know you are clean from sin or sorrow. all can be made right through the atonement of Christ.

How I live my faith

i live a normal life! my faith in Jesus Christ has an effect on everything i do. this doesn't limit me or hold me bad but rather sets me free and gives me a peace and a direction. god has given us the knowledge between right and wrong and we have the agency to choose to follow Christ or not. i have learned from experience that as we choose to follow Christ and his light, there will be illumination and light brought into ours.
